"A slow-cooked crock of short ribs that is easy to prepare, tasty, very tender and offer a Polynesian twist. Great over rice. Great as a potluck dish."

I tried this recipe for Father's day and it was a hit! I used pork ribs instead of the beef, and threw them on the barbecue grill for 4 minutes each side before slow-cooking.

Everybody loved it! It's so different from anything we usually have. It is now part of our regular routine.

This was so quick, easy, and tasty. I also used pork ribs, like the last reviewer. Well make this gain for a crowd. Thanks for sharing.
